BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli soldier was injured on Monday morning in an explosion near the border fence between Israel and Lebanon, according to Lebanese TV station al-Manar.

The TV channel, which is affiliated with Lebanese group Hezbollah, reported that an explosion occurred while the soldier was working inside a trench Israeli forces had dug a month ago near the fence.

The report did not give further details about the nature of the explosion.

Although the border is generally calm as a result of a ceasefire between Hezbollah and Israel in effect since 2006, in recent months there has been an uptick in violent incidents.

In December, an Israeli soldier was shot by his Lebanese counterpart on the border, though authorities claimed it was an "individual act."

The attack came four months after an Israeli incursion onto Lebanese territory near the border, which was repelled by an explosion claimed by Hezbollah that injured four Israeli soldiers. Israeli soldiers had penetrated 400 yards into Lebanese territory at the time of the blast.

Israel is a United Nations country. The only one in the world that has opponents like Hezbollah, Hamas and Iran that seeks its destruction.

#2 Brian It was Hezbollah that rid Lebanon of Zionist tyranny! Israel is responsible for creating its own opponents.

It seems an isreali terrorist was wounded when the bomb he was planting went off prematurely.... How sad and tragic....
